Fundraising and Development


Fundraising, otherwise known as Development (although purists will advocate a clear distinction), is the process of securing donations of money and other resources from individuals and organisations.

Fundraising is usually the dominant method utilised by non-profit organisations to generate funding for their operations. These operations may involve various pursuits such as religious or philanthropic groups, research organisations, charity groups, political campaigns and environmental concerns.

Fundraising and Development professionals develop and implement fundraising strategy and deliver fundraising programs relating to individual donors, corporate donors, grants, philanthropic foundations and corporate giving.
